Christ: delivering Adulteress -- In a group, scribes and Pharisees wear hats. The foremost brings the veiled adulteress, with her mantle in her right hand and her chin supported by her left hand, toward Christ, cross-nimbed, with His right hand pointing to the ground and holding a book in His left hand. The tonsured Apostle Peter and other disciples, including two nimbed, accompany Him. Scene within Gothic arcade and foliate frame decorated with cusps of foliate terminals, and four heraldic shields, including Moreuil (two), in four of six medallions (two as halves).
